Draft format for Wednesday’s OSLC BoF

(The goal is to learn more about the needs of the community and, possibly, to get feedback on Steering Cmte initiatives from the Qua Vadis OSLC? discussions.)

  • 5 minute overview of the current state of OSLC, including
    • introduction of the existing Steering Cmte
    • overview of TC/WG status
    • election news
  • general (set of) question(s) to the audience, something like:
    • Are you using OSLC today, if so, how and for what?
  • after getting some responses on that question, open the floor to general comments and questions, encouraging contributions in the following areas:
    • bragging about success
    • griping about shortcomings (vendor support, missing scenarios, missing domains)
  • possibly: sharing some output of Qua Vadis OSLC? efforts and looking for feedback

Projected Order of Business

  1. Review Agenda
  2. Agree on BoF Format and goals
  3. Discuss other items

2. Updates [[review|discussion]: 10 min]

OSLC Requirements, Architecture, and Quality Management TC

by Sean Kennedy

Co-proposers needed. We should use Innovate to attract some co-proposers. Potential recruitment forums: OSLC Ped, OSLC BoFs, Block Party, Social Networking Event. Traceability between these 3 domains is of recognized import in the Systems Engineering community, we should focus on recruitment from organizations in that area.

Projected Order of Business

  1. Review current status
  2. Brainstorm on RAQ recruiting

3. Looking Ahead [[discussion]: 15 min]

Executive Summary

  • Liaison with INCOSE: waiting on response from INCOSE, have followed up recently
  • Liaisons with other organizations?
    • OMG System Engineering DSIG’s OSLC4MBSE WG is making progress … is (or will) anything more formal (be) required?
  • OSLC @ EclipseCon Toulouse update
    • Gray Bachelor (IBM) and Jean-Luc Johnson (Airbus)(?) doing a tutorial on OSLC
    • other happenings?
  • OSLC @ EclipseCon Europe ?
    • do we want to do more at the Fall conference than in Toulouse?
    • what would that “more” be?
    • what are the next steps?
